Stronger Together

We understand that learning is complex, learners are diverse, and ecosystems are intricate. Navigator has been built, researched, tested, implemented, and integrated by diverse researchers, technologists, educators, corporations, technologists, and partners who continually help improve and refine Navigator by usage.

The Navigated Learning Collaborative

Content providers, administrators, and implementers contribute to Navigator applications and use them with their cohorts. Researchers bring learning science and data science to develop models for learner identity, use principles of learning in suggesting individual pathways, and estimate the efficacy of learning activities. Funders fuel innovation, place a spotlight on the diversity of learners, the complexity of learning, and the intricacies of the learning ecosystem. Partners benefit by licensing the Navigated Learning tools.

Across Disciplines and Geography

With strong foundations in the learning sciences, data science, and artificial intelligence, we continually build on Navigator’s technology to assure learning outcomes for every learner. Our collaborative reaches across disciplines and geography to bring together diverse stakeholders in the learning ecosystem - content providers, implementers, researchers, technologists, educators, funders, school administrators, and government officials.

Navigator is Unique

Partners and collaborators leverage Navigator in ways specific to their needs. They contribute content, develop or share competency models, provide feedback from their implementation, or leverage anonymized data to enhance the underlying science and advance Navigator for all other partners.

Funder Supported Research

Funders from any sector, foundations, non-profits, government agencies, for-profit companies support Gooru’s research to practice development of Navigator and its tools. Funders are crucial partners that enable the advancement of competency models and aligned content for various disciplines and to implement Navigator in different learning environments. Funders can view or track their efforts and receive immediate information to monitor programs, understand the efficacy of resources, and track learning outcomes of their philanthropic spending through our Mission Control dashboard.

Navigator for Partners

Partners are able to leverage the technology that Gooru along with our Navigated Learning Collaborative is continually iterating and refining. Our technology can integrate into a variety of environments, technologies, and platforms.

Member Types

Partners: Partners across industries and learning disciplines worldwide can license and integrate Navigator tools into their applications in custom ways to assure learning for their cohorts and enhance their learning solutions. Partners can enhance their products with Navigator's capabilities, including open competency frameworks, open content, underlying technology, tools, and a trained AI engine. Navigator is not another online learning solution, partners can leverage Navigator’s ability as an equity enabler that brings transparency into the learner’s proficiencies, activities, and preferences.

Partners can license tools, leverage Navigator APIs and widgets, or white-labeled Navigator courses to develop custom solutions to integration. Through this integration partners gain access to Gooru’s Navigator library, NCore technology, and in-depth student analytics.

Tool Providers: Tool providers can integrate their tools into Navigator or build and distribute third-party tools via APIs. Tool providers contribute to building a comprehensive toolbar to enhance and support student learning in varied areas, such as tools for special education, decoder, glossary, text to speech, speech to text, graphing tools, notepad, or peer to peer.

Gooru maintains the infrastructure and tool providers can access thousands of varied learners and instructors to study efficacy, validate tools, and track use and learning outcomes.You will help define the tracking and metadata surrounding your tool so you can track use at different grain sizes and see learner journeys before and after tool use. As a tool provider, you will be joining a mission to support learning outcomes for all learners and innovating an existing product used by millions.

Gooru is a non profit dedicated to the human right of education. It makes learning tools to facilitate educators and learners everywhere.

Lab Schools: Lab Schools are collaborators in the K12 space who want to be involved in the research to practice cycle. Implementers are classrooms and post secondary schools who wish to implement Navigator. Governmental organizations, government-sponsored programs, post secondary schools, adult learning, skills training programs, remedial programs, and soft skills programs are implementing Navigator to track learning outcomes in real-time based on learner progress and provide additional support to struggling learners.

Lab schools and implementers use Navigator in their classes and cohorts, they create content and courses, and track learning competencies, and implementation techniques to boost learning outcomes. Instructors and administrators have access to different levels of real-time data to make in-the-moment modifications to teaching and learning approaches or provide additional support to struggling learners. It is easy to use, inclusive, scalable, learning-outcome focused, and designed to demonstrate evidence of impact. Schools and implementers are using Navigator's Mission Control dashboards at the student, class, district, and state levels to provide clear, easy to understand analytics on what is and isn't working for enhanced decision making, improved resource management, and better outcomes.

Our schools can intricately track learning and collaborate with other instructors by making materials available to instructors everywhere through Navigator’s catalog, and providing anonymized data to improve the navigated learning experience for all collaborators. Lab school feedback and the ability to study learning and implementation practices is integral to Navigator’s innovation. Our lab schools are joining a mission to support learning outcomes for all learners and innovating an existing product used by millions.

Content providers: Content providers, implementers, groups with highly curated and scrutinized open education resources, and administrators bring expertise and content to Navigator courses. We welcome content experts from any discipline, in any language, for any age group, with any type of curated content. Content providers develop a competency model and migrate their existing content to be aligned with the competency model. Once your content is added, tagged with metadata, and crosswalked to standards you can begin to study the efficacy of your content, validate your content, and share highly curated content with learners and help them achieve learning outcomes. 

Content providers track and use learning outcomes based on learners using your content. You can create metadata and tags to track certain pieces of learning at every grain size. Based on learning outcomes and content tracking metrics, content providers can iterate on content in real time to increase learning efficacy. As a content provider you will be joining a mission to support learning outcomes for all learners and innovating an existing product used by millions.
